Barring some sort of super late rush surprise announcement, 2016 for the year of Blu-ray is pretty much in the books. And as always, looking back, it was another terrific year. Many more Wishlist films from years’ past were granted on Blu-ray and some that were being prepped for this list got announced before it […]

Its been another wonderful year in the world of Blu-ray with a good chunk of titles coming off my wishlist and into my Blu-ray collection. In the past year I retired the somewhat weekly rendition of this column in favor of it being annual. It would have been nice to keep the weekly one going, […]
One year ago today, I wrote an article focusing on 14 movies I’d like to see on Blu-ray for the year 2014. That article wound up becoming the pilot for what would sort of be a regular week-to-week series from me, whining about a movie that’s only on DVD or VHS and not here to Blu-ray […]
Happy Halloween – tomorrow. I’ve saved my grooviest scary movie wishlist pick for last here. If you’ve ever seen this one, you’ll know its tons of fun and man o man do we wish for it to get the Blu-ray treatment. Make sure you check back next week (Wednesday to be exact) as it will […]
The month-long horror wishlist continues with the Sawyers! . . . . .
I’m gonna go pretty obscure with today’s title. I’ll be interested to see who remembers it. As a reminder, this month with the wishlist we are…of course…all about the horror. The director of this one’s only notable achievement following this one is An American Werewolf In Paris, which, could be another “Who remembers that one?” […]
Another week, another horror film on the wishlist and another sequel to boot. In the realm of horror, we’ve had countless sequels, and Blu-ray is the format that seemingly is hesitant or taking its time to crank a lot of them out into production. A lot of these movies have gone from big titles, hits […]
The horror themed Wishlist tread to Halloween continues. This time with ZOMBIES! Lets get our bite on with today’s Wishlist pick! Blu-raaaaaaayyyyyyyyys… . . . .
And I’m back. Sorry for the inconsistency, but I’ve been a bit busy with other reviews and blog posts…and well…life outside of typing on a computer. I’m hoping to make a weekly march toward Halloween starting today, with a new horror movie each week. The genre has PLENTY of titles that have yet to see […]
And after a short hiatus, the Wishlist is back! Today is a special one, too as its sort of a cross-over with my Naptown Nerd blog. The film I’m talking about today is also the same one I’ve already written about over there today as well. Currently, I’m doing a retrospective on the filmography of […]
We’re finally here! The Expendables 3 comes out tomorrow. This is the end of our ‘Countdown To Expendables 3’ series. And if we started with Sly we’re ending on Schwarzenegger! Today’s pick is the biggest glaring hole, not only of Arnold’s catalog, but the director, the studio and Blu-ray as a whole. We have one […]
We’re almost to Expendables 3! It comes out next week. Still 2 movies left for the ‘Countdown To Expendables 3‘ series. Today we focus on series mainstay, and one who’s action career started with a little pick me up by starring with Stallone in Rocky IV, Dolph Lundgren. Dolph was supposed to be the next […]
Mel Gibson is one of the newest action heroes of 80s/90s to hop on board the Expendable train. He’s actually the villain of the upcoming film. And what a dynamite choice. Gibson was pretty much unstoppable from Lethal Weapon to Signs. Hell, for me, I’d say from ’79 in Mad Max to then, but he […]
We continue our ‘Countdown To Expendables 3‘ edition of the Blu-ray Wishlist with a film from the library of Expendables II star and scene stealer Jean-Claude Van Damme. When I was younger I was a pretty big Van Damme fan. He seemed to be the hipster choice of action star when it came to them. […]
Did you miss me? No? Well eff you too, pal! Haha. Like it or not, I’m back. I had only planned to take one week off and it wound up being too (not by design). For the next 5 weeks we’re going to be doing a ‘Countdown To EXPENDABLES III’ with the Wishlist. Each week […]
I’m gonna go with comedy again this week to finish out the month of June. And I’m digging into that of the teen variety, picking one of my favorites of that subgenre from the 90s. Its a film I kind of have a nostalgia for and I think is a solid film that not many people […]
Today’s wishlist was actually one of my most anticipated to see titles in the summer of 2008, believe it or not. This cult classic comedy also was the start of one of today’s bigger comedy stars. I still don’t think a lot of people are familiar with it. . . . .
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the wishlist! . . . . .
